Sophie Bevan is one of the most exciting vocal talents of today with a rapidly developing international career. She has just been awarded the Times Breakthrough Award at the 2012 South Bank Sky Awards.

“Matching her in youthful spirit is Sophie Bevan; her pristine soprano suggesting an effortlessly charming ingenue.”
George Hall, The Guardian

Running time 1 hour approx

Holy Trinity Church, Haddington

Holy Trinity stands on the site of a Franciscan friary (the original ‘Lamp of Lothian’ before that title passed to St Mary’s Church nearby) which was built here in the 13th Century. The friary was demolished in 1572, and almost two centuries later, in 1769, work was begun on a ‘qualified’ Anglican chapel which was finally consecrated as Holy Trinity in 1815. The present chancel was added and the interior remodelled in an attractive neo-Byzantine style in 1930.
